Jobs that aren’t good for love life

Jobs that aren’t good for love life

People who follow certain career paths are more likely to face marriage problems than others, research suggests.

Analysing recent US Census Data, career website Zippia found that workers in certain fields are seeing higher divorce rates by the age of 30 than most others. It found that those who work as enlisted military supervisors came off worse with a shocking 30 per cent of their marriages headed for the trenches.

This is followed by those with jobs as logisticians, automotive service technicians and mechanics, followed by military-enlisted tactical operations and air weapons. In fact, careers in the military accounted for three out of the top 10 spots in the listing causing military workers of all ranks to become the most likely to divorce by 30 at a rate of 15 per cent. But why?

While the answer isn't totally clear, Zippia suggests that divorce rates in these roles are a result of stress caused by active service, coupled with the strain of “deployments, frequent moves, and difficulty with reintegrating the spouse back into the family's daily life when they return home.” A separate study published last year in the Journal of Population Economics agreed, revealing that military deployments do have a negative effect on marriage.

It revealed that jobs with the lowest rates of divorce included religious workers, dentists and speech-language pathologists.  The Independent
